A day out of my Me Journal

The weather today is: Beautiful –a fine fall day- the days you wish could stay around for ever. Not too hot, a little cold and crisp in the evening.

In the news today: The economy and Politics. Mostly the economy.

News and events with my family and friends: Yesterday my son’s girlfriend Ashley, Ryder’s mother, lost her Dad. It was sudden and unexpected. He was younger than me I believe. He died of a heart attack. Please pray for their family. Ashley and Ryder were in a bad car accident when they were leaving the hospital. I am so thankful they are okay.

I am excited about: Today we are having professional pictures made of my grandchildren. I can’t wait to show them off. It’s exciting to get new pictures of my beauties! It’s a beautiful day for it.

I am concerned about: The economy and so many people who are affected that I know.The price of gas is going down thankfully. Everyone is feeling the crunch of our economy in some way-restaurants are hurting because people don’t go out as much- I have two kids in the restaurant business.

Physically and mentally I feel: Physically, I  need to lose weight. I am frustrated with myself for gaining what I lost last year and need to get a life change in this area. Mentally- I feel good because I know who holds my tomorrows and I am His. My heart and well being mentally are good because they rest In God.

What I learned today: That having a day off and sleeping late can sure cure what ails you, especially at the end of two very busy weeks or is that 3 busy weeks?

People/ things that brighten my day: OF COURSE- my grandchildren- spending time with friends – good music- spending time in the Word or talking to God to name a few.

What I did to brighten someone’s day: I need to work on this one today. You always feel better when you do something for others. That’s my philosophy.

Good ideas for a better tomorrow: Encourage people I know to see the movie “Fireproof” for their marriage.

Encourage people to find a church home for a family to walk along beside them while they are here on earth.

When you are weak in an area –such as I am at discipline when it comes to exercise and eating right –find someone to walk beside you and help you-someone to be accountable too. I need that!

Encourage people to love their families and friends with all they have for we are not promised tomorrow.

Enjoy this beautiful weekend-This is the day the Lord has made-I will rejoice and be glad in it.

Be blessed!

It was a great day indeed, and a great week for the kids to be out of school. I really enjoyed the time with you and your little munchkins this evening. Ryder is going to be in concert very soon, I just know it:) They were all so sweet singing with us on the way home tonight.
Love you!

The economy thought is hitting home with everyone. I just thank the Lord that He is our provider and we don't have to give in to fear. Great post.
God bless,

I did the same thing Lorie! I am up the same amount of weight that I worked so hard to lose just last year. I cannot believe that I have done that. Not only did I spend the time, the HAIR LOSS from it, but also a chunk of money. I have no idea why I do this to myself.

But mentally I feel the same as you too. God is just so GOOD!

I’m back……Today I caught up on all the blogs I missed. I saved you for last because I wanted to read each word slowly and not speed read like I did with some to catch myself up. I hope you know how special you are – just in case you forgot – YOU ARE SPECIAL! Now what’s the deal with your last blog being three days ago??

I'm stopping by SSS to say hi. I'm sorry about the sudden death of a friend. My son in law suddenly lost his little brother last week. I can empathize. I hope your son's girlfriend will have comfort.
